Trying to identify a lever-action rifle (non-firing possible replica)
Hi - I have a non-firing lever action that I'm trying to identify. It's a possible replica - and has absolutely no markings on it that I can tell at all. Total length is right around 36 inches.
Here are a couple of pictures:
There are more pictures at http://bkd.freeshell.org/rifle/
There is one problem with the piece - there was a pin holding it together but it's gone ... see this picture:
This would make a great wall-hanger for somebody... and sorry for the blurry pictures.

I can't tell from pics if it is real or not. But looking at second pic of how barrel attaches to receiver I would guess that it is a non-firing replica of an 1866 Winchester.

That is the BIGGEST first post I have ever seen!
Don't know what it is, or even if you can read this, but welcome from SE PA.

Hmm.... Except for the side plates.... Maybe it is a not very accurate replica of an early Winchester rifle... TGR, you're right about the 1873 having side plates on it... I may have to give on this one.

Welcome to the forum, Brian
Me, I vote for a non-firing replica, not a working gun made by a gun company, per se. Basically, something to hang in a den. Otherwise it would have some kind of markings on it.

The side covers on the receiver of a 73 are removeable and the 66 there is no side covers on the receiver to remover . 90% of the 66 and 73 parts are interchangeable with each other . It is a copy of a 73 and not a 66 .
